Kindred Connect Family Contact Centre

Kindred Connect is a private Children’s Contact Service operating on the northern side of Brisbane. Kindred Connect was created out of community need, and, in response to lengthy waiting lists for, (often inadequate), government-funded services. Kindred Connect was established in 2012 and has been operating for more than eight years.

Kindred Connect offers an affordable, user-pay alternative for parents seeking Supervised Contact and Supported Changeovers for their children. Our vision is to lessen the burden on existing government-funded services while providing children and their families a safe, secure, convenient, and compassionate service.

What is a Children's Contact Service?

Children’s Contact Services assist separated families with the logistics of regular and meaningful parent-child contact, following separation. In the case of separated parents experiencing high levels of conflict or where there are concerns about violence, we facilitate safe transfers of children from one parent to the other.

Who might use a Children's Contact Service?

In many cases, the use of such services, are part of orders of the Federal Circuit or Family Law Court. Other families seek out Children’s Contact Services such as ours voluntarily.
